South Sudan President Salva Kiir on Wednesday, March 8, sacked his foreign minister, less than a week after the dismissal of the ministers of defence and interior, the president's spokesperson said without providing an explanation. Foreign minister Mayiik Ayii is a close ally of Kiir, and previously served as the minister of the president's office.

Kiir earlier fired his government's Defence and Interior ministers in a move that goes against the terms of a peace agreement signed in 2018 with opposition party leader and First Vice President, Riek Machar. Kiir fired the country's defence minister Angelina Teny, a leading member of the opposition SPLM-IO led by Machar who is also the latter's wife, and interior minister, Mahmoud Solomon, a member of the SPLM party, in a presidential order read on state TV, Manyiel said on March 4.
